Prepare a 2 percent v/v Remedy Ultra solution in diesel or fuel oil (13 fl oz of Remedy Ultra in 5 gallons of spray mixture).
Mix 25 to 30 gallons of Remedy Ultra with 10 percent penetrant, such as Cidekick, in enough oil to form 100 gallons of spray mixture to control or suppress vulnerable woody plants. Streamline basal bark treatments work best on stems with a basal diameter of less than 4 inches. Use a backpack or knapsack sprayer with equipment that allows for a directed straight stream spray. Apply the spray to one side of stems with a basal diameter of less than 3 inches in a 2- to 3-inch broad band. Within 30 minutes of applying the correct amount of spray mixture, the treated zone should widen to encircle the stem. Treat both sides of stems with a basal diameter of 3 to 4 inches. Apply the spray to bark that is 12 to 24 inches above the ground.
Make oil-water emulsions with diesel, fuel oil, or kerosene, as well as an emulsifier like Sponto 712 or Triton X-100. Before preparing oil-water emulsion sprays in the mixing tank, perform a jar test to ensure that the spray mix is compatible.
The label does not suggest that both should be used. Using both would be considered an off-label application. It is suggested that you stick to the label and only use one or the other.
How much diesel do I mix with remedy?
When you want to control both mesquite and yucca at the same time with the same treatment.
1. Gather the necessary equipment.
A pump-up garden sprayer, backpack sprayer, or sprayer mounted on a 4-wheel all-terrain vehicle can all be used to apply the herbicide spray (ATV). A ConeJetTM5500-X1 adjustable cone nozzle should be attached to the spray gun. Install a 100-mesh screen/check valve behind the nozzle to prevent clogging and dripping.
2. Combine the herbicide and the diesel fuel.
To manage yucca, mix RemedyTMherbicide with diesel fuel oil or vegetable oil. The oil guarantees that the herbicide is completely covered and absorbed by the plant. 15 percent RemedyTM and 85 percent diesel fuel or vegetable oil is the suggested blend (see mixing table below). Using vegetable oil instead of diesel fuel oil raises the expense, although in some cases it may be preferable. JLB Oil PlusTM is a vegetable oil that is known to blend well with RemedyTM. When combining RemedyTM and oil, pour the needed amount of RemedyTM into a mixing container or spray tank, then add enough oil to get the desired total volume. Shake or stir the mixture vigorously until it is evenly distributed.
Also available is a “pre-mix” of RemedyTM and vegetable oil. Remedy RTUTM is the name of this “pre-mix.” Simply pour Remedy RTUTM from the jar into the sprayer and apply to yucca as directed by the Brush Busters for the Remedy + Oil Whorl Spray.
To aid identify treated plants, one ounce of Hi-LightTM blue spray-marking dye can be applied to each gallon of spray mix or Remedy RTUTM.
3. Douse the Yucca with water.
When used throughout the growing season, the Remedy + Oil Whorl Spray is most effective. Make sure your spray gun has the 5500-X1 nozzle installed. Spray for at least 2 seconds with the nozzle in the center of each whorl (slowly say “one Mississippi, twoMississippi: while depressing the trigger on the spray gun).
If applied properly, the Remedy + diesel fuel mix will be the least priced herbicide and oil combination – roughly 2 cents per plant. If you use vegetable oil or Remedy RTUTM, the cost will be higher.
- As the number of yucca plants and whorls per acre grows, the expense of treatment rises quickly.
- When used as a stemspray, this approach will also suppress smooth-bark mesquite (see Extension document L-5144, “How to Beat Mesquite”).
